BRS Reef Saver rock is one of the easiest rocks to work with when aquascaping new tanks or adding more rock to an established tank.  

BRS recommends curing all rock before being used in an established system

Hi there,
What is the recommended amount of rock per gallon? I'm aquascaping a JBJ 28 LED tank. thanks!
Question by: Chris on Sep 30, 2013 8:07:00 AM
Hey Chris,
We recommend a pound per gallon as a good ballpark place to start. It will give a nice middle of the road aqua-scape and is what most folks are looking for!

I'm setting up a 35 gallon 20inX20in cube, out of the three pukani, reef saver or Fiji which offers the smaller pieces my tank requires for me to get the best results aquascaping? Thanks!
Question by: Kyle on Nov 22, 2013 8:48:00 PM
Hi Kyle,
Fiji and Reef Saver offer the smallest size pieces. Personally I prefer reefsaver in these types of situations as it is really easy to stack and create your aquascape.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Nov 22, 2013 8:48:00 PM
Is the price shown here the price per pound? Thanks.
Question by: Steve on Sep 5, 2013 6:11:00 PM
Hi Steve,
Yes the rock is sold by the pound, so the quantity you enter in the quantity field is the number of pounds you are ordering.

Hi, I am looking into getting into a reef tank. I understand I need to cure the rock, but could I keep fish during the process? Also, would 60 pounds of reef saver be a good amount for a 40 breeder?
Question by: Ethan Wood on Apr 10, 2016 4:52:00 AM
Great question!
You will not be able to keep fish with curing rock as the nutrient levels will fluctuate too much. Around 40 lbs would be recommended for weight. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 13, 2016 6:57:00 PM
Do the rock come in certain sizes or just random?
Question by: Bobby on Feb 9, 2014 6:38:00 PM
Hi Bobby,
There made by nature so they are like snowflakes, each piece is entirely different, though most range in the softball to football size.

What is the weight of one rock?
Question by: Logan on Apr 25, 2016 11:42:00 AM
Great question!
It will range by size of the pieces however on average a football sized piece will be 5 lbs.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 27, 2016 2:44:00 PM
I've just read a couple of articles saying that this rock has phosphates in it and to give it a Muriatic acid bath followed a Lanthanum Chloride treatment, is all this really necessary?
Question by: Vinny on Mar 30, 2016 7:22:00 AM
Great question!
You will not need any acid or other treatment for the rock. By curing the rock in heated saltwater for 6-8 weeks you can remove all dead and decaying elements (Phosphate is not "In" the rock rather it is part of the dead and decaying elements) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 31, 2016 7:06:00 PM
I am setting up a new tank and will add the rock with live sand and water at the same time. Can I just put this rock directly from the box into the tank without curing in water for a couple of weeks? Thanks,
Question by: Jonathon C on Mar 17, 2016 1:09:00 PM
Great question!
You certainly can cure the rock in the tank without much issue. You will want the rock to sit in the tank with no lights and high flow for 4-8 weeks. After which you can perform massive water changes of 100% and ensure the nitrogen cycle has begun. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 18, 2016 9:53:00 AM
Is the price for the rock for a piece or by pound? If so, how big is the piece?
Question by: Frank on Apr 12, 2016 5:38:00 PM
Great question!
All rock is sold by the pound. On average a football sized piece will weigh between 5-10 lbs. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 20, 2014 11:26:00 AM
I am starting a new tank with the Reef Saver Dry Live Rock and Caribsea Arag-Alive Fiji pink sand. Should I start the cycle with the sand first while I cure the rock and add the rock later? Or can I start the cycle with both the sand and rock? What is your recommendation?
Question by: Calvin on Apr 23, 2014 3:37:00 AM
Hi Calvin,
If your going to cycle the rock in the tank, I would just do your aquascape, add the sand, add the water, and then let the whole system cycle together.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 23, 2014 3:37:00 AM
I have a 75 gallon reef tank with only 60 pounds of live rock I want to buy 50 pounds of reef save dry rock but what is the process to do to add it to my existing tank without a problem
Question by: Christian on Aug 2, 2014 1:59:00 AM
Hi Christian,
The Reef Saver Rock is the cleanest of the rock so you don't have to worry about a cycle when adding it to an existing tank. You will get the best results by giving the rock a bit of a cure before adding it to the tank though. The simplest thing to do is to grab a container large enough to submerge the rock. Fill it up with your rock and some saltwater, throw a heater in it and let it sit for 4-6 weeks.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Aug 2, 2014 1:59:00 AM
Because this rock is considered to be devoid of all pests and algae is it still a requirement to cure it prior to beginning to cycling my tank or can I just aqua scape add sand, water and continue on ?
Question by: Chris on Mar 9, 2016 9:41:00 AM
Great question!
You will want to cure the rock still to build up a safe amount of bacteria and remove any dirt and contaminants as it is still removed out of the ground, Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 9, 2016 3:54:00 PM
I am setting up a 120 gal and would like to buy 120lb of reef saver rock. Now if I use the Red Sea reef mature kit or Dr. Tim's bacteria to cycle the tank do I still need to do the 100% water change?
Question by: Michael Eaddy on Apr 3, 2016 10:09:00 PM
Great question!
We recommend curing the rock in a separate container to remove any excess nutrients before placing into the tank and starting the tanks cycle. If you prefer to cure in the tank we recommend curing for the same period and starting the cycle with the mature pro later. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 6, 2016 6:50:00 PM
Hello, i was going to buy some of this rock but i see that it does not display by how many pounds you guys sell it. How many pounds is the rock displayed?
Question by: Max on Jun 13, 2015 5:17:00 PM
Great Question,
We sell all of our rock by the pound. We ask that you give us an estimate of how many lbs of rock you are looking for (Ex. 1 lb per Gallon) The pieces shown in the product photo are not actual pictures of the rock you will receive, more of an idea of shapes and sizes, the typical Reef saver will range between 5-15 lbs for a football sized piece.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 15, 2015 4:17:00 PM
How big is each piece?
Question by: Chad on Mar 17, 2014 4:13:00 PM
Hey Chad,
Each piece is different which is why its sold by the lb. Pretty typical for most pieces to be in softball to football size range with a football size piece weight somewhere in the ball park of 7-8lbs.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 17, 2014 4:13:00 PM
Hi I'm setting a 20 gal tank. Please recommend the quantity adequate. Can this be shipped to India??
Question by: Conrad on Feb 26, 2016 9:31:00 AM
Great question!
We typically recommend 1 pound per gallon around 20 pounds total. Unfortunately we do not offer international shipping outside of the US and Canada. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 26, 2016 9:39:00 AM
Just bought some of the reef saver rock. What temp should water be to cure. I'm going to be adding these to established reef with existing live rock. I'm going to cure for 3-4 weeks. Should I ever change the curing water while curing? When cure is done, do I just rinse rock off and add to tank or something else?
Question by: stanton on May 13, 2014 11:55:00 AM
Hey Stanton,
I would use water that is the same temperature as you will have the tank at. Pretty good bet that will be somewhere around 78 degrees or so. You don't need to do a water change while curing the rock but you want to get rid of all of that water when your done. If your curing in a separate container you can just move the rock to the tank. If your curing in the tank then do a 100% water change.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on May 13, 2014 11:55:00 AM
Do we type how many pounds we need of the live rock in the quantity feild? Like I would need 20 so I would just Type 20 in the quantity feild and I would get 20 pounds??
Question by: Ben on May 16, 2016 9:00:00 PM
Great question! All of our Dry Live rock is sold by the pound, meaning, quantity entered stands for pounds (lbs). Ex: 20qty = 20lbs :)
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 24, 2016 11:24:00 AM
Hello I have the reef saver rock and wanted to know how many pounds to put in 60 gallon tank ?
Question by: Hector on Jun 7, 2014 9:41:00 AM
Hi Hector,
About 60lbs total should be great for a tank that size.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jun 7, 2014 9:41:00 AM
Good Morning! I'm wanting to create a couple of islands in my reef tank hopefully creating a "bonsai" look. I've ordered 60 lbs of the reef saver rock and wanted a few of the shelves with the base. But it would only let me order a minimum of 20 lbs which came to almost a $100. Is there any way that I can order less than that? I'm not sure how much 20 lbs of the shelf rock would be and I only wanted a few pieces to add to each island. Thank you for your help~
Question by: Janet on Jan 22, 2014 4:31:00 AM
Hi Janet,
The 20lb minimum isn't because we don't want to let you buy less then 20lbs, its because a single rock weighs atleast 20lbs :-) Rocks with base are typically quiet large so if your looking for smaller/lighter pieces, the pieces without a base will be what your looking for :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 22, 2014 4:31:00 AM
I'm looking to add some dry rock to my existing setup? I will not be removing any of my current live rock I would just be adding the dry rock. So can I just put it right in or is there something I need to do to it first? Thanks for the help........Chris Turo
Question by: Chris T on Mar 31, 2014 1:28:00 PM
Hi Chris,
We would always recommend cycling any rock outside of an existing aquarium before adding to a tank with livestock, though as far as rock goes the Reef Saver rock is by far the cleanest rock out of the box.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 31, 2014 1:28:00 PM
Whats the average weight per a rock?
Question by: peter on Apr 8, 2016 10:19:00 PM
Great question!
Depending on the size they can typically range from 5 - 10 lbs per piece. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 12, 2016 5:32:00 PM
do you need to cure reef saver rock the same as you would live rock or is it fairly free of organics?
Question by: john on Sep 1, 2013 3:53:00 AM
Hey John,
We would advise cycling any type rock from any source because it just isn't worth the risk of your live stock not too. As far as the rock goes though, the reef saver is by far the cleanest of any of the rocks right off the bat.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 1, 2013 3:53:00 AM
Howdy y'all, I've seen the video of Ryan chiseling and cutting the Pukani rock. Is the Reef Saver rock as easy to manipulate and cut? Thank you!
Question by: Blake on Oct 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM
Hi Blake,
The Reef Saver rock is much harder and not nearly as easy to manipulate. If you want to chisel out caves and the like I would highly recommend going with the pukani :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Oct 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM
I am in the process of planning a new tank, a JBJ 45 rimless Cube AIO and was wonder what is the recommended amount of rock for a tank this size as well as the correct amount of sand for it. the actual display portion of the tank will be 26 x 16 x 21 I was going to use the ocean direct original grade sand approximately 1- 2 inches deep. Would you recommend another type of rock for this?

Thank you.
Question by: Rob on Dec 23, 2013 1:28:00 AM
Hey Rob,
Great questions. For a tank your size 45-50lbs of rock should be right in the ballpark of what your looking for. Sand wise with the dimensions of your tank, coincidentally your also looking at 45lbs to get you about a 2" sand bed (half as much for a 1" sand bed). With most sands being sold in 20lb or 40lb bags, I would pick up a 40lb bag (or 2x 20lb bags) and you should be in great shape.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Dec 23, 2013 1:28:00 AM
if I order 50 does that mean 50bls?
Question by: Diana on Oct 3, 2013 10:52:00 AM
Hi Diana,
Yes this product is sold by the pound, so the quantity that you order is the number of pounds that you are ordering.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Oct 3, 2013 10:52:00 AM
does this rock have to acclamate
Question by: lynda on Oct 24, 2013 10:26:00 AM
Hi Lynda,
The rock isn't alive so it itself doesn't need to be acclimated. We would however recommend cycling any rock from any source being atleast cycled before adding to an existing aquarium to make sure there isn't any risk to your existing livestock.

  • Rock Soli By Taylor on 5/17/2016

    I ordered 10 lbs for a nano tank that I am setting up and it arrived in three large pieces. I had been hoping to make an arch out of the rock and it worked very well. I was happy with the appearance of the rock that was shipped to me. I was kind of unhappy that there were some sides of the rock that were not as presentable as others which made it kind of difficult for me to create an aquascape that I liked, but in the end I was able to make it all work. That's my only complaint. Otherwise, I think the rock looks great and I can't wait to see how it looks when I'm finished with the project.
  • Good, but not great By Broc on 5/14/2016

    For the price this cannot be beat. I was very happy when setting up my 40 gallon tank. I bought 80 pounds which is too much but I wanted a good variety of rock to aquascape. I will use the extra 20 pounds in the future. Now, this rock does lock in pretty easy, but it crumbles a lot. You barely touch it and pieces break off. My tank is now 3 months old and when I use a simple tooth brush on the rock it creates a ton of dust. Even just blowing a powerhead directly during water changes will make it dust up. I did rinse it very vigorously in ro/di water bucket before putting in. Even during that process the bucket turned a very strong milky color. Only time will tell the long term ability of this rock.....
  • Great rock, easy to scape By Devon on 5/7/2016

    I bought 40lbs for my 24"x24"x12 cube and was able to make a great scape. I requested smaller pieces and the delivered. Wish I could attach a picture of the scape it is seamless and Looks great coming out of the water.
  • Great value! By Mike on 5/6/2016

    Easy to work with, though fairly heavy. Pieces were larger than I expected, so I didn't have to worry with stacking many smaller pieces together. I was able to create a stable arch using just 3 big hunks!
  • I'll Take Aquascaping on the Rocks for 200 Alex By William on 4/29/2016

    I will probably never start a new tank with live rock, ever, never ever again....... ever! The reef saver rock is great. You are reducing the impact on coral reefs, you are receiving a great product that is easy to aquascape, and it was very porus, which I was impressed with.

    Once again, this was a product that was bashed on the forums, I tried it anyway, and I had a small fear that it would not be as porus as I would like, but I was wrong. The stuff fits together like a 3D puzzle, you can take all of it and make it look like one big rock, if thats what you are in to these days. Great product and always friendly service at BRS!!
  • Best Rock I Have Ever Used! By Gerald on 4/25/2016

    Rock was very easy to stack and locked together great. Pieces of rubble can be be glued to the seams to make it look like one rock structure instead of just a pile of rocks
  • Looks Great. By NewFisher77 on 4/18/2016

    Everything I expected, cant wait to see it change with age.
  • Great rock at an awesome price. By Mae on 4/17/2016

    I requested and got several pieces of medium to smaller sized rocks, all of which linked together beautifully in my 29 biocube. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to live rock.
  • Great Rock By I love reefs on 4/9/2016

    I placed and order for 70lbs and received 77!!! Love me some freebies, the Rock was really well packaged and the pieces where great. Will definitely be ordering more soon.
  • nice looking rock By pap on 3/22/2016

    Nice rock. cured for 2 1/2 weeks. put in established tank. time will tell.
  • Second Time Great Again By Sbappe on 3/21/2016

    Second time ordering this rock. The first time I asked in the checkout comments for a couple large pieces, not really expecting them to go through the trouble of giving me what I asked for. To my excitement, I got exactly what I asked for. This time I didn't ask for anything special and they gave me a wonderful variety of sizes and shapes. I was expecting to have to chip and chisel away to scape it how I wanted but with the variety they gave me none of that was needed and the end result exceeded my vision. I've been using this rock for months now in two tanks along side Fiji rock that I started with. I'm going to keep sticking with this stuff from now on and interlace it with lace rock and shelves. Works wonderfully. My first order with the 2 large pieces I was able to chisel, not exactly how I wanted because it was crumbly and I hadn't worked with it before but now that I know how to work with it I don't see a problem in the future if I ever wanted to chisel caves and stuff. I bet it would dremel amazingly. Months of having it in my tank, absolutely zero complaints of leeching or any other kind of quality. I have to give them props for one more thing too. The packaging was jam packed with packing peanuts and I had absolutely nothing broken. Barely even any little rubble in the bottom of the bag. The large two pieces I had some little pieces broken off but I was planning to chisel away at it anyway and create a little more rubble for my jawfish to build with and for my fuge so it just freed me up of some work. Like I said, I will keep on buying this.
  • Very happy By Adam on 3/9/2016

    For what it is, you can't beat the price. If I could do it over again, I would go with the pukani dry rock because it is a better quality rock in my opinion, but I am also very happy with this rock.
